Description 

As of 2012, this is the reason for climbers to come here. With its >1 hr. approach, don't expect crowds. If you arrive in the autumn, you won't be alone, however: a stone's throw from the cliffs lies private property, all of it hunting clubs, whose members gleefully ply the woods below for game. Bright colors are strongly recommended during hunting season.
Though short, the cliff boasts a lot of excellent climbing, most of it both pumpy and technical. Solid leading at mid- to hard 5.10 level is the sweet spot, although most of these routes can be TR'd with the help of a long static line or extra rope.


Getting There 

Follow the herd path described for West Mtn. Ridge all the way to this southernmost cliff.

Bouldery moves off the ground lead to a bolt and then a horizontal crack. Traverse the crack onto the arete and move up via right sidepulls and left fantasy-friction grips, past another bolt to a notch breaking an overhang. Step right into the notch or layback the thing up its left side (notch offers gear but is awkward, layback is uberscary but easier). Continue up the crack system to security at the oak tree of your choice.Incredibly sequency, pumpy, and exposed....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
